Bali Agenda For Creative Economy

The 21 Points of the Bali Agenda for Creative Economy, adopted in 2018, constitute a comprehensive and forward-looking framework for stimulating and sustaining national creative economies. The Agenda delves into four key pillars, addressing both foundational elements and aspirational goals:

1. Strengthening Collaborative Ecosystems: Recognizing the transformative power of cooperation, the Agenda underscores the necessity of fostering robust creative communities. This entails international collaboration, knowledge sharing, and the development of supportive environments for creators and entrepreneurs. Additionally, it emphasizes the importance of inclusivity, advocating for the engagement of underrepresented groups within the industry.

2. Cultivating a Conducive Environment: The Agenda identifies the critical role of building a sturdy infrastructure for the creative sector's flourishing. This encompasses initiatives such as facilitating access to funding, digital tools, and specialized training programs. Furthermore, it promotes the establishment of clear legal frameworks that protect intellectual property and incentivize creative enterprise.

3. Championing and Amplifying Creative Outputs: The Agenda underscores the need for active promotion and valorization of the creative industries. This includes celebrating cultural diversity, engaging in strategic communication to highlight the sector's economic and social contributions, and empowering creators to reach broader audiences through robust distribution channels.

4. Embracing a Sustainable Trajectory: Recognizing the intertwined nature of economic progress and environmental responsibility, the Agenda emphasizes the integration of sustainability principles within the creative sector. This includes encouraging the adoption of environmentally conscious practices, promoting cultural heritage preservation, and ensuring that creative endeavors contribute to the attainment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

By embracing these four pillars, the 21 Points of the Bali Agenda for Creative Economy offer a roadmap for nations to leverage the immense potential of their creative industries. It is a framework that fosters economic growth, cultural vibrancy, and a more sustainable future.
